This introductory text for juniors and seniors emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of the subject, making it accessible to all students with a background in dynamics, circuits and systems. In particular, the text is appropriate for mechanical and electrical engineering students, interspersing intermediate material necessary to each discipline throughout. To bridge the gap between treatments at a technological level and those dealing with graduate topics in robotics, the author continually provides connections and transitions from background to new material. While a broad range of topics is covered - from kinematics and sensors to microprocessor control- the author presents each topic in one consistent style, and unifies the component of machine design, dynamics, solid state electronics. A unique section on robotics applications is also included, highlighting the use of robots in a wide range of problems in automation. The text follows a traditional format, with more than 100 worked examples, 200 homework problems, 400 illustrations, and accompanying solutions manual.
